Music lyrics are a terrific medium for teaching kids facts while having fun! Ozomatli’s newest album, OzoKidz, is a terrific example of learning fun! Filled with science facts, learning, and fun upbeat music, this album will get you and your kids up and moving while singing about trees, the sun and moon, water, spelling, and more! I love music with a purpose! Check out these terrific songs…
All the elements that make a tree grow: seed, soil, sun, rain, flowers, bees, birds…

Tickets, popcorn and friends equal fun at the movies!
“I know my life’s complete when I got a skateboard under my feet!”
Salt water, fresh water, tap water, rain water, glaciers, geysers, marine layer… “Water here, water there, water everywhere!” (Did you ever think you would hear the words “water crystal cohesion” in a song?) This is definitely my favorite song on the album!
Spelling words to music is fun!
It is all in Spanish, so I have no idea what they are singing! (Except for the part about “Dance, dance monkey pants!”) Ha, ha, ha!
